The Pirates First Game
Saturday the Pirates (FINALLY) had their first game against the Braves. For about 1/2 the team this is their first time playing on dirt. Remarkably most of them left the dirt alone. They had some difficulties finding the base since they were playing on a larger field with two sets of bases down. Alex had some great stops and throws to first base during the game and ran really fast when it was his turn to hit the ball. I think (despite some errors running to third instead of first) the Pirates won! Way to go Pirates!
